Faculty and Unclassified Staff Handbook
Chapter 7-- Student Affairs

Dissent and Protest

Part of the freedom in the academic community is the student's right to orderly dissent and protest against any decision or issue. This right to demonstrate does not include using means or procedures which disrupt the on-going functions of the University, nor endanger the health, safety, or well-being of any citizen in the on- or off-campus communities. The Kansas Board of Regents has ordered any legal or disciplinary means necessary to preserve the peace and safety of all persons or institutional property and the prevention of interference with or disruption of educational functions.

Kansas Board of Regents: Policies and Procedures Manual (1970, 1986).

Individuals wishing to express their concerns should confer with the Vice President for Student Affairs regarding procedural policy and appropriateness of their proposed actions.
